GraceConnect eNews, No. 141 Week of February 29, 2016


The eNewsletter for the Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches
Love One Another

This six minute video tells the story of how members of Grace Community Church, a Grace Brethren church in Frederick, Md. (R Dallas Greene, senior pastor), rallied around fellow church member Nichole Gibson, when her husband died in 2014. This story brings to life Jesus' command in John 13:35 that "By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another."

[Your Turn]



"I think I had always had this expectation that once I came up out of the water, something miraculous will happen inside of me and after that very moment, I would never be the same. The truth is, there isn’t anything in the water. The baptism won’t save you. God’s grace will. The moment you meet Jesus is the moment you change forever. Baptism is a proclamation of that moment."

The recent blog post by Jaycie Hooley of 
Grace Church, Wooster, Ohio (Bob Fetterhoff, senior pastor), explores reasons why Christians get baptized through her own testimony of baptism. Click here to read the rest of the post. 


"Our passions are our engines. Fueled by our beliefs, they keep us going in life. In this week’s message, we will be asking what it is like to live a life driven not by idle opinions but by a passion for the true and living God."
